DataConsulting September 2011 Newsletter

2011-09-01
Welcome to our September Newsletter!

The leaves are falling on the ground and the kids are heading back to school. That can mean only one thing – Summer is pretty much over!

At a time when many of us are embarking on new educational adventures why not up your ACL skills by attending one of the open enrolment courses scheduled to be run during November. Whether going for the foundations course or the advanced course you’re bound to pick up new skills which will enhance your ACL prowess.

The first instalment of the duplicate payments piece in our August newsletter proved incredibly popular, our dupes expert Ian Anderson (an aspiring J K Rowling) has followed this up with another instalment for you to enjoy.

Finally, if you have a spare five minutes try and crack our ACL anagrams.

All the best for the remainder of September,

Robin Clough

Duplicate Payments Series

Part 2 – An Overview of Duplicate Payments

A low turnover of spend, unconvinced by the arguments, or worried perhaps that it might make you look bad. There are plenty of reasons why organisations put off performing a payments review. I would argue, rightly, that there is no time like the present to look at your Accounts Payable function. What’s the worst that can happen? You invest some time and either recover some money, or get a clean bill of health.
